dc.description.abstract Two old friends from high school are meeting in the street. One of them appears alarmed when the other hugs and kisses him.This series shows the readiness to engage in risky enterprises, the dream of easy money, and the greedy hope for immediate fulfilment of all wishes without responsible involvement. Daumier denudes the ruthless materialistic attitude of his time. At the same time the series shows the bizarre of these outcasts of civilization, expertly drawn and described by Daumier. We follow the debris of all classes and ranks: the man of letters to the clipper of dogs, the old business man and the political refugee, the Chief Administrator of the Empire and the used clothes merchant. It is this mixture of diversity, hope, despair and chance which makes this series so real and meaningful even by today's standards. While shocking and sometimes even repulsive these prints leave the attentive spectator with a feeling of sorrow and sadness but at the same time with awe about the ingenuity of fellowmen in distress, hoping to pull themselves out of their misery - sometimes the Munchhausian way.
